The menu here is somewhat limited, but the salmon (basically the only thing that appealed to me) was very good. The hush puppies and the bread pudding were both excellent. Service was good, but reservations would have been a good idea on Friday night (they...More

All the restaurants we picked were good but this was my favoraite. I had an Oyster Poboy with a side of Maque Choux and Crawfish Cornbread. The oyster melted in my mouth. Maque Choux is a littled spicy but still very good. After having the...More
